For today’s post, I thought it’d be fun to talk about the Disney songs that always bring a smile to my face, especially as this was the post you said you’d like to be my next Disney one when I did a poll on Twitter. Let’s get started!
In no particular order…
FROZEN- IN SUMMER (sang by Olaf)
This probably won’t be the song that first springs to mind for you when you think of Frozen, but it is for me! It’s such a cheerful, happy, hopeful song and it totally captures Olaf as a character. The animation throughout the scene where he sings it is superb too; especially the part where he tap dances 😍
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST- BE OUR GUEST (sang mainly by Lumiere and Mrs Potts)
I’m not sure why I like this song, I just do! It’s silly and fun, and I think it’s one of the happiest moments of Beauty and the Beast (which is quite a melancholy Disney film a lot of the time, in my opinion). It’s definetely not my favourite of this list, but I still like it a lot.
THE ARISTOCATS- EVRY’BODY WANTS TO BE A CAT (sang mainly by Thomas O’ Malley. The alley cat 😉. Top points to you if you get that reference 😜😂)
This song is amazing. I love everything about it. The slow bits, the fast bits, the instrumentals, the scene. A fabulous song that really makes The Aristocats that little bit more special (and it’s already pretty fantastic). Also, Marie the kitten’ s line is ultra adorable and never fails to make me smile and melt my heart a little!
THE LITTLE MERMAID- UNDER THE SEA (sang by Sebastian)
If this song doesn’t make you sing along, I’ll be surprised. Sebastian isn’t my favourite in the Little Mermaid (that honour is reserved for Flounder. He’s a close second though), but this song is easily a Disney classic. It also holds a special place in my heart because when Saffy (my 3 year old Golden Retriever, if you’ve not read this blog before 😘) was a puppy she was a terrible sleeper (she was quite badly behaved in general/exuberant, even more so than she is now). As in, she basically turned into something out of the Exorcist when you left her in the kitchen to go to sleep. This song was one we used to play/sing to her and it did the trick more than some! Even now she’s a big 3 year old, I still sing it to her when she’s scared or upset. Hope you like these photos of her as a crazy pup!
My final choice of song may be my favourite of all…
TANGLED- I WANT SOMETHING THAT I WANT (sang by Grace Potter, in the credits)
I know, I know, it’s not technically a Disney song. But, have you HEARD it? It’s one of my favourite songs pretty much ever, and every single time I hear it I want to shout out all the words and just dance. I’m never happy that Tangled is over, but I also kind of am as I get to hear this playing ❤
So those are my favourite feel good Disney songs, what are your’s? I’d love to hear about them in the comments or on Twitter @GoldenBooksGirl
